Drury went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Yankees. The utility player got the start at third base in this one, with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. slotting in at designated hitter, and responded with his sixth homer of the year. Drury has five multi-hit performances in his last 10 games, slashing .342/.381/.553 over that stretch, but his playing time will likely remain spotty as the rebuilding Jays put an emphasis on developing the group of top prospects they currently have on the big-league roster.
Drury is not in the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Rockies. Drury will take a seat for the second straight game despite going 11-for-30 with five doubles and five RBI in his last eight games. Lourdes Gurriel, Jonathan Davis and Randal Grichuk will start from left to right in the outfield for the fifth straight game.
Drury isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Rockies. Drury is in the midst of a modest three-game hitting streak, but he'll get the night off. Randal Grichuk draws the start in right field, allowing for Jonathan Davis to get the nod in center.
Drury got the start at shortstop and hit seventh in Tuesday's loss to the Rays, going 1-for-2 with a walk and an RBI. The 26-year-old had already seen action at third base (27 games), second base (10 games), right field (nine games) and left field (two games) this season, but Tuesday was his first time playing shortstop. Drury's defensive versatility gives him some value to the Jays, but his fantasy utility remains minimal -- he hasn't homered in May, slashing .221/.247/.309 through 19 games with seven RBI and eight runs.
Drury is not starting Monday against the Rays. Drury finds himself on the bench for the second time in three games. Randal Grichuk starts in right field.
